Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal, who is currently in rehearsal for Sunday in the Park with George at the Hudson Theatre on Broadway, has posted a video to his Facebook page showing him singing through “Finishing The Hat”. The stylish video, filmed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, shows Gyllenhaal walking down through the Hudson’s fly system as he sings, finally arriving on stage to join musical director Chris Fenwick and his band. The 36-year-old Academy-Award-nominated actor is due to make his Broadway debut in the newly re-opened Hudson on Saturday 11th Feb for a 10-week run.
He previously performed the lead role of Georges Seurat to much acclaim in a three-night New York City Center concert production in October last year. Reprising her role as Dot will be Annaleigh Ashford. If you didn’t catch them then, now’s your chance, and as this newly posted video shows, Jake can certainly sing!
This is what happens when Riva Marker (the badass president of NineStories) and I invite #CaryJojiFukunaga to rehearsals for our new Broadway musical. Check out this video we made! #SundayintheParkWithGeorge
